I BOUGHT MY TICKET, NOW WHAT?

Great! Start registering for classes and networking events. You DON'T have to register for classes if you don't want to. It's just there to help if you'd like. You can join and leave any class at any time. You will want to sign up for networking events ahead of time to make sure you have a spot.

MEET THE ORGANIZER

Matthew Deighton

Hello! I grew up near Seattle, lived in Texas, and now call Utah my home. I have a passion for woodturning, promotion, events and creating. It was only a matter of time before I built an online symposium! I helped the Utah Woodturning Symposium for several years, and have spent the last 5 years building the Woodturners Worldwide instagram page to a community of more than 125,000. That's what I want to do here. I want to build a global community of woodturners. For many, we'll never see some of the great woodturners of the world demonstrate. With today's technology, we can. Selfishly, I want to see many of them demonstrate. Building this event allows me to rub shoulders with some of the greats, and I'm hoping you can rub shoulders with them too. Reach out if you have any suggestions on how to make this an amazing symposium. Hope to see you there!

DETAILED INSTRUCTION

All of our videos are shot with multiple close-up camera angles. This means you get the best seat in the house featuring the best possible angles, so you never miss important information...and you're never stuck in the back.

INTERACT WITH DEMONSTRATORS

We have fully live demonstrations mixed with pre-recorded demos. For pre-recorded demonstrations, the turner will be answering questions in the chat box during the demo. They will also be available for a live video Q&A after. Attendees can ask questions and interact while those who want to watch the demonstration can without interruption.
